Praise from the Swedish Publisher:

“I love this fast-paced thriller in a snowy Helsinki environment. A well-portrayed female protagonist and a plot that urges the reader forward until the last page.”
– Helena Ljungström, senior editor, Albert Bonniers Förlag, Sweden

Praise from the Korean Publisher:

“We were fascinated by the rapid storytelling and the originality of the subject. It is more impressive in that a female detective led the story. It is also a very interesting and absorbing work in the process of tracking down criminals.”
